A Precious Gift

Here at Kaua‘i Habitat we are so fortunate to meet and interact with so many generous and giving souls. Every once in a while, one of these caring individuals, steals our hearts. Recently we had a visit in our office from Meaghan and her mother Stephanie. Meaghan raised $35.00 with her friends selling lemonade at their lemonade stand. Meaghan’s father and sisters had attended Clemson University and after she heard the story of football hero Deshaun Watson, and how he grew up in a Habitat House, Meaghan was inspired to donate her earning to Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity. If you are not familiar with the story of pro football player Deshaun Watson, who in college led the Clemson Tigers to a national championship, it’s a touching story of how his life was changed the day he moved into a Habitat home as a child. Watson is now an advocate of Habitat for Humanity and started a nice tradition of Clemson’s football team doing annual Habitat builds. While Meaghan was touched by his story, we are touched by hers. To see someone as young as Meaghan choose to put other peoples needs before her own, you just can’t help but be inspired.
